Meet Nene Anegasaki, who's just made some lonely Japanese guy very happy.   (Love Plus)

(Newser) – A Japanese man pledged his undying love to a video game character last weekend, in a first-of-its-kind ceremony witnessed by dozens of gamers. The man, username Sal9000, had fallen in love with Nene Anegasaki, a virtual woman in the Nintendo DS dating simulator “Love Plus.” He “married” his digital before a real-life priest, though the priest stressed the marriage wasn’t legally binding. Some gaming websites, however, say Sal9000 earlier took Anegasaki to a chapel in Guam, where marriage laws are looser.
